Estranged Realities at University of Wales, Newport on 29th June 2006
Call for Papers - deadline 24th April
Keynote Speaker: John Roberts
‘Estranged Realities’ is a one-day conference organised by and for
postgraduate students. Its aim is to provide a forum for discussion of
diverse aspects of representational practices as produced by photography and
film (including digital manifestations). In hiding the conditions of its
production, film and photography have been able to simultaneously produce
‘otherness’ and difference whilst also allowing for imaginative and
subjective interventions into realist discourses. Whether as a vehicle for
producing knowledge (however subjective or partial) or intervening in the
production of reality, photography and film provide rich breeding grounds
for discussions on the estrangement of the medium from itself and the medium
from its subject.
‘Estranged Realities’ will provide a friendly and critical forum for the
presentation of papers. Submissions from MPhil/PhD candidates or candidates
who have submitted thesis within the past twelve months are welcome (whether
practice-led or theoretical/historical).
‘Estranged Realities’ is organised and funded by the Centre for Photographic
Research, the International Film School Wales and InvisibleCollege.
